You may not think a pair of socks is a good gift, but hear me out on this one. The socks from Conscious Step are basically a guaranteed home run when it comes to hospital gifts. Think about it – everyone wears cozy socks when they are in the hospital. What makes these socks extra special is how your purchase actually protects the planet.
Each purchase of the Conscious Step Socks are amazing because they help plant trees while saving the oceans and rainforests. Beginning with a sustainable creation process, this company has kept an eco-friendly mindset in mind with every step of the way.

12. Living Proof Perfect Day Dry Shampoo
Ask any hairdresser – dry shampoos are not created equal! Most of them will dry out your hair, making it brittle. For your friend in the hospital, that simply will not do, which is why they need a good dry shampoo (my favorite dry shampoo, of course).
Living Proof is a company known for its amazing formulas to create hair products that won’t damage your hair. Their dry shampoo is known throughout the world as one of the best in the business and would be an excellent gift.
